I might be wrong here, but I don't think they even made Sunbirds in 69? Didn't production start in like 75??

I'd keep the Cherokee, you will miss it as soon as you trade it. Sunbirds are also very ugly IMO.

You are really asking that question here? You should know better than that, if not, you should probably trade it!

Post pics of this 69 "Sunbird". Maybe your confusing this Pontiac with another model, and why do you want to trade your XJ anyway?
